Maryam Rezaei accepted into Animax Skopje International Animation Festival


Maryam Rezaei's animated short film entitled "Democracy" was recently accepted into the Animax Skopje International Animation Festival in Macedonia. The film is about the corruption and abuse of power that occurs when one man uses others to achieve power for himself. The animation was created by Maryam in the spring of 2013 and features a simple black and white drawing style.

The Animax Skopje Festival is in its third year of programming, and features animators from all over the world. The mission of the festival is to promote animation in Macedonia and develop communication between artists in Macedonia and abroad. According to the festival website, the festival is for "anyone interested in animation as a means of communication, as a way of expanding horizons, as an effort to support a cultural form and spend leisure time creatively and constructively as part of a global trend of creative industries in Europe and the world."

Maryam Rezaei is in her second year in the Master of Fine Arts Visual Communication program at UTA.
